Sustainable Economy Forum

6 & 7 Nov, Algiers

We are today spectators of a world which seems to evolve, as if in an inevitable way, towards a place where no one would like to live. Our current economic models are factors of climate change, pollution and widening inequalities.

The latest IPCC report sounds the alarm: we are a few steps away from catastrophic and irreversible consequences.

Sustainable Economy Forum

Circular economy

The circular economy is an economic concept that aims to minimize the waste of resources by using sustainable methods of production and consumption. It is based on a closed loop system, where waste is reused and transformed into raw materials, thus allowing a more efficient use of natural resources.

Smart cities

The concept of a « Smart city » has been gaining popularity in recent years, with cities around the world looking to integrate technology and data in order to improve the quality of life for their residents. At the heart of the smart city concept is the idea that cities can use technology to better manage resources, reduce waste and pollution, and increase efficiency.

Renewable energies

Renewable energies have become an increasingly important topic in the quest for sustainable development across the globe. As the world shifts away from fossil fuels, renewable energy technologies like solar, wind, hydro, and geothermal are becoming more popular.

Responsible tourism

Tourism is one of the largest industries in the world, generating trillions of dollars in revenue each year. However, traditional tourism has often been criticized for its negative impact on the environment and local cultures. The rise of a new tourism that is respectful of both the environment and cultures has become a priority in recent years.

Inclusive growth in Sahel

The Sahel region, located in Africa, faces numerous challenges, including poverty, conflict, and environmental degradation. To promote economic growth in the region, an inclusive approach is necessary to address the root causes of these challenges. An inclusive growth strategy can empower communities, reduce inequalities, and promote sustainable economic development.

Clean and Responsible mining

The mining industry has been one of the driving forces of economic growth and development throughout history, providing the essential raw materials that underpin modern economies. However, mining operations can have significant environmental impacts, including pollution of air, water, and soil, destruction of ecosystems, and greenhouse gas emissions. To develop a clean and sustainable mining industry, it is essential to adopt a range of measures aimed at reducing these negative impacts.

Precision agriculture

Precision agriculture is an innovative farming practice that seeks to optimize crop yields and minimize resource usage. The goal of precision agriculture is to increase efficiency, profitability, and sustainability by utilizing advanced technologies and data-driven approaches.

Blockchain and Carbon

The increasing levels of carbon emissions and resulting climate change have become a significant challenge for our planet. The use of blockchain technology has emerged as a promising solution to address this issue. The decentralized nature of blockchain provides a unique opportunity to track and manage carbon emissions in a transparent and secure manner.


Clean and accessible water is a fundamental need for all living beings, yet many people around the world lack access to this basic resource. Sustainability plays a crucial role in ensuring that we can meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. In the context of water, sustainability means managing our water resources in a way that ensures their long-term availability and accessibility.

Ethical and green finance

Ethics and green finance are two concepts that are increasingly being integrated into the world of finance. The financial industry is facing challenges in terms of sustainability and ethical considerations, and green finance is emerging as a new way of financing that takes into account environmental and social concerns. Ethic and green finance, therefore, represent a new paradigm shift in the financial sector.

Corporate Social Responsibility

In an era where environmental and social concerns have gained significant prominence, it is crucial for businesses to demonstrate authentic commitment to sustainable practices. However, greenwashing has emerged as a prevalent challenge, where companies employ misleading tactics to project an image of environmental responsibility without taking substantive actions. This session will confront the issue head-on, exploring the implications of greenwashing and highlighting the importance of genuine corporate social responsibility.

Fossil fuels

As we strive to meet global climate goals and transition towards a low-carbon economy, the need to decarbonize fossil fuel production has become paramount. This topic brings together industry pioneers, policymakers, researchers, and innovators to share insights and strategies for transforming the fossil fuel sector. By exploring the next steps in decarbonization, we can foster collaboration and drive meaningful change in how we produce and consume fossil fuels.
